Edit: (If you have PM's please direct them to the private account DoctorBobSmith. Impressions is a public account. I'm going to hold Impressions hostage for a little while, until the confusion subsides.) Got in to medical school this year, and I'm already looking ahead... I'm an alcoholic who is prone to bad relapses and am trying to get as much help as I can before school starts. I have been arrested three times on Minor in Possession of Alcohol charges, two Public Intoxication charges, and a Drunken Disorderly in multiple states, cities, etc... 1 MIP, 1 PI, and the drunken disorderly are on my record. They all range from one-seven years old. Assuming I get through med school (might be an if, if I'm not sober), will these charges keep me from getting licensed? They are all low-level misdemeanors, but they probably show a pattern? Will they give a license to a "recovered" alcoholic?
